Got my 2nd betas back :(

I'm trying so hard not to fall apart. My levels only increased from 44000 to 58000. That's 14000 in 48 hours. Thankfully my doctors office squeezed me in for an us tomorrow. Anyone have an btdt stories to share. Good or bad, I want to know what your thoughts are? Any chance things could still be ok?

How far along are you? Your numbers seem very high, I wonder if they reach a point where they stop doubling as quickly as before. I've never had a beta done, so I don't know a lot, just what I hear from other ladies. Good luck! I'll be thinking about you tomorrow!

I believe they stop doubling after they get to a certain point (they can't keep doubling forever because they peak at something like 200,000 or 300,000). After after doubling every 48 to 72 hoyrs for a while, they double only every 96 hours for a while before they peak and actually come down (levels in the third trimester are lower than at 8 to 10 weeks of pregnancy, for example. I would not be disappointed by your numbers. Take heart!
